CCH® IntelliConnect Browser Search Named 2015 American Business Awards℠ Finalist for New Product/Service of the Year: Solution for Integrating Content into the Workflow

RIVERWOODS, Ill.--()--CCH IntelliConnect Browser Search, from Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting US, continues to earn prestigious industry recognition for transforming the way professionals do tax research by integrating its expert and citable content into Google and other search engines to streamline workflow for tax and accounting professionals. The first-of-its-kind research tool has been named a finalist for the 2015 American Business Awards (Stevie Awards) in the category: New Product/Service of the Year — Solution for Integrating Content into the Workflow. This comes at the heels of other recent industry nods. Just last month, CCH IntelliConnect Browser Search was named a finalist in the 2015 SIIA CODiE Awards for Best Solution for Integrating Content into the Workflow, and earlier this year Accounting Today magazine named CCH IntelliConnect Browser Search to its top new products list for 2015.

CCH IntelliConnect Browser Search is the latest addition to the award-winning CCH IntelliConnect® research platform. The installable browser add-on — included in all CCH IntelliConnect subscriptions —changes the way professionals search for tax and accounting answers by displaying the CCH IntelliConnect expert answers and insight directly on the results page of popular search engines, creating a seamless, convenient and easy experience for the user. With CCH IntelliConnect Browser Search, users enjoy the advantage of blending the relevancy and expert focus of trusted information with the simplicity and inclusiveness of a regular browser search.

“It’s a great honor to see CCH IntelliConnect Browser Search recognized once again by the industry as an innovative and powerful solution,” said Josh Braunstein, Vice President and General Manager of Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting US, CCH Research & Learning. “Being named a Stevie finalist confirms what our customers have been telling us — that this tool is delivering great benefits to professionals by simplifying workflows, increasing productivity and saving valuable time.”

The American Business Awards are considered the nation’s preeminent business awards program. All organizations operating in the United States are eligible to submit nominations — public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.

Finalists were chosen by scores of business professionals nationwide during first-round judging in April and May. Members of several specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the finalists during final judging, to take place later this month. CCH IntelliConnect Browser Search will ultimately be named a Gold, Silver or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program when the final awards are presented at the American Business Awards new product & technology awards event taking place September 11 in San Francisco.
